Carolina Forest High School teacher Aundrea Rue’s family also grew today by three. Rue officially adopted siblings Raphael, Victor, and Elianah after fostering Elianah since 2014.
Her passion for helping children led her to become a registered foster parent in 2006, and since then she has fostered seven children.
“Children who are unique, children who need help…that’s huge for me. And that’s why I got into foster care,” Rue said.
She wasn’t looking to adopt children at the time, but now says she’s honored to be mom to four adopted children. She adopted Isaiah from South Africa in 2016.
“I was actually not looking to adopt. I just wanted to help as many children as I could. And when you know, you know,” Rue said.
Rue also volunteers her time advocating for foster children through the Horry County Foster Parent Association.
Rue received most positive comments about her adoption, but some people wrote nasty comments on social media.
